Mötley Crüe are back with a brand new song, ‘Dogs Of War’, marking their first release since parting ways with guitarist Mick Mars with John 5 as his replacement. The track, produced by longtime collaborator Bob Rock, merges old-school vibes with a contemporary twist, showcasing the band’s desire to keep their sound fresh. Frontman Vince Neil expressed excitement about the new music, hinting at more releases in the pipeline.

This single follows the band’s recent deal with Big Machine Records, reigniting their collaboration after the success of the 2014 project Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute To Mötley Crüe. In terms of new music, the song follows the group’s four songs released in 2018 for the film The Dirt. Mötley Crüe’s official latest full-length studio album was 2008’s Saints of Los Angeles, which soon followed a 2009 Greatest Hits.

Despite calling things quits nearly ten years ago with a massive farewell tour, Mötley Crüe returned from the musical grave in 2019 and have been touring, more or less, ever since. While their return created a shakeup between the band and former guitarist Mars, they’ve decided to move forward with John 5. Mars has since gone solo and released his debut solo album, The Other Side of Mars, in February.
